We don’t publish much cosplay, but these two girls we spotted wearing Gachapin and Mukku costumes in Harajuku were really fun. We thought that their positivity and bright colors fit in with the spirit of the MIGHTY HARAJUKU Project that we’ve been supporting in the wake of the recent earthquake.
Both girls – Sakura & Kyan – are Japanese junior high school students. Both bought their Gachapin costumes at Don Quijote. In case you don’t know, Don Quijote is a famous Japanese department store that sells lots of strange things you never knew you needed. Both of the girls are also wearing t-shirts from Tamiya, as well as handmade masks with colors that look very similar to the Tamiya logo, each with slightly different text on them (one says “do-s” and the other says “do-m”).
Both of the girls told us that their favorite music is by the Japanese visual kei band Golden Bomber. Like many fans of Golden Bomber, they both like the Tamiya Corporation.
